So, through a couple of transactions, I picked up a nice old RAS, no base
Then, bought a newer RAS with base and retract casters, but bad
"unrepairable" motor. ($10)
Old saw on new base, new switch on old say, sell it off at market price for
a reasonable profit.
Used new saw table parts for some other project.
Stripped and scrapped the rest.
However, I couldn't seem to bring myself to scrap the frame of the newer
So I've got this frame with pretty solid C-channel construction, with a
overarm, that rotates and locks, and a trolley with rotation and "yaw"
Aside from the drum sander setup, what else in the woodworking/metalworking
should I make with this? Overarm plasma cutter? Guided angle grinder?
router support? This is in a general wood/metal hobby shop, supporting home
'60s car and boat, and a teenageer. Already have lathe, mill, standard ww
sutff, CSMS, etc. etc.
It's not a storage problem right now, so it's just hanging around.
Or should I chuck it, too?
